You’ll be travelling through some stunning scenery on your transfer, but children don’t always appreciate the majestic beauty of the mountains as much as grown-ups do.
Ski resorts are famously hard to get to and generally involve a few hours on a coach to get there. That doesn’t fly for most kids, so the less time spent on the coach the better.
The good news is that both Alpe d’Huez and Les Deux Alpes are around two hours from Grenoble airport. This gives you and the kids enough time to watch a movie and have a quick snooze before getting to resort.
Worth knowing: Tour de France fans will know that the road up to Alpe d’Huez is renowned for its 21 hairpin bends. You’ll get amazing views out across the valley, but it may be worth packing travel sickness tablets if your children get a bit queasy.
